No 792,533. PATENTED JUNE 13, 1905. M. MILLER.



UNITED STATES Patented June 13, 1905,



SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 792,533, dated June 13, 1905.

Application filed August 29, 1904. Serial No. 222,601.

To all whom it may concern.-

Be it known that I, MOSE MILLER, a citizen of the United States, residing at Donora, in the county of Washington and State of Pennsylvania, have invented certain new and use ful Improvements in Sweat-Bands, of which the following is a specification, reference being bad therein to the accompanying drawings.

This invention relates to sweat-bands of hats or other head-coverings, and particularl to means for holding a slip bearing such matter as the name and address of the owner or advertising or like matter.

The object of the invention is to provide means whereby the slip bearing any desired description is associated and held securely in place with the sweat-band in such manner that it will not be subject to injury by perspiration or otherwise.

An embodiment of the invention is disclosed for purposes of illustration in the accompanying drawings, forming part hereof, and wherein the details of construction and the features of novelty will be apparent.

In the drawings like reference characters refer to corresponding parts in the several views, of which Figure 1 is a view of a sweat-band made in accordance with my invention. Fig. 2 is another view thereof, and Fig. 3 is a sectional View.

Referring more particularly to the drawings, 1 designates a sweat-band for hats, and 2 one or more openings formed therein. To

band 1 on the surface which is next to the hat and covering opening 2 at the back is sewed or glued a piece of backing material 3, preferably of the same composition as the band itself and thereunder and next to the band 1 a piece of transparent impervious material 4 of practically the same size as piece 3. The pieces 3 and 4 are held together and are sewed to the band by the same row of stitching 5, extending along the bottom and side edges of said pieces in such manner as to form a pocket between said two pieces open at the top, into which can be slipped a card or the like hearing any desired inscription, which will be visible through transparent material 4. If desired, pieces 3 and 4 can be held together and to the sweat-band by any other suitable means, such as adhesive, wire fastenings, or the like.

Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is

The combination with a sweat-band having an opening therein, of a pocket adjacent to said opening, said pocket comprising two pieces of material distinct from the material of the sweat-band and fastened together along the bottom and side edges and attached to the sweat-band by the same row of stitching, the said piece. of material next to said opening being transparent whereby the contents of said pocket are visible through said opening.

In testimony whereof I affix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
